Over Fonda Vela Hotel
Natuur is waar het hier om gaat. Het hotel is gelegen in het regenwoud, waar het verfrissende klimaat ervoor zorgt dat men het er "eeuwig lente" noemt. Het hotel is gebouwd met de natuur in het achterhoofd. Zo laten de grote ramen in de kamers de natuur naar binnen komen en zorgt de 1400 m hoogte voor een prachtig uitzicht. In de omgeving zijn natuurpaden te vinden waar je mooie vogels tegen kunt komen en het beroemde Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve ligt op 2 kilometer afstand.

Een bezoek aan het Monteverde Nevelwoud is als een sprookje. Het bos wordt dan ook wel ‘het sprookjesbos van Costa Rica’ genoemd. De geheimzinnige mist die altijd in dit woud hangt, zorgt voor een mysterieuze sfeer.
"Gorgeous room, property, and surroundings"
We LOVE this place! Checked in with Jessica at the front desk who was kind and helpful. We went to the restaurant and had delicious meals. Slight word of caution, if you order Salchipapas, it's not exotic. It's hot dogs and french fries. Lol. Anyway, the other items were exotic, delicious, the welcome drink was so good!!!! The host at the restaurant was so sweet. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous. Lush, green, full of birds, wandering capybaras, and flora. We went to our room and were taken aback at how beautiful it was. 2 story room with huge windows and beautiful wood paneling. We each had our own privacy. Seriously, i wouldn't stay anywhere else. Plus, this was so close to the park entrance of Monteverde. TV was clear and had lots of channels and entertainment. fridge and microwave and other appliances and furniture all looked new!
Lovely place, beautiful surroundings and very close to the cloud forest. The service can improve a little. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The food in the restaurant was delicious, and they provide a complimentary breakfast.
"a bit eerie and under-staffed"
A bit torn. The rooms are huge and quite beautiful. The property is beautiful and the restaurant and bar area appear to be first class. However, it seems to be lacking staff. There is a pool but it is covered and shaded and the water was unbearably cold. There are 2 hot tubs but only one with hot water, the other was cold. The bar at the pool was not staffed, hence there was no music or refreshments near the pool. Some people had stuff brought down but dirty dishes seemed to stay for hours. When we arrived, there were dirty dishes on the empty bar and no one around. There were only 8 deck chairs and 2 were broken but when there were 10+ people near the pool, there was no where to sit in the sun anyways. We tried to get a cup of coffee from the restaurant (at 1pm) but could not find any staff. NO WiFi in the rooms was very frustrating and unexpected in this day/age. We asked for 4 bath towels but cleaning staff would continually leave only 2 (for 4 of us). Bathrooms in the room are very dated and in need of an update. The lady at the desk was polite and tried to accommodate but the place seems VERY short-staffed. We really had trouble finding someone sit/serve us at the beautiful restaurant during the day time. The hotel is close to the cloud forest but honestly, I'd recommend staying closer to town and taking a taxi to the cloud forest anyways. Fonda Vela is a steep hike from the nearest restaurant and from Monteverde. This place feels like an abandoned treasure in a beautiful setting. It is not ideal for families as the restaurant is expensive, it's far from other establishments and the pool is really cold and shaded and a far away from the rooms. It needs WiFi, a hotel shuttle bus, some pool lounge chairs, a pool with some sun and/or warmer water, and STAFF! A little happy music in and about the restaurant / pool area wouldn't hurt either:)
"Four Star Hotel"
We liked it. Our room was spacious and clean with a nice view. The restaurant serves a great breakfast and we enjoyed a late lunch and beverages. The front desk staff was helpful getting us a night jungle tour. The bartender set us up nicely with a welcome drink and a appetizers The pool was immaculate, and we caught some rays. No complaints at all.
"Nice lodge, rooms, and restaurant in the middle of the jungle"
Great lodge in the middle of the Monteverde jungle. Rooms are spacious and have either balconies or an extra area with a couch. Good size rooms. No A/C as it is normally cooler in this part of the country. Rooms have fans. Restaurant has a great selection for lunch and dinner and breakfast buffet includes typical foods and a omelet station. Arrived on my birthday and the restaurant brought out a whole cake on the house at dinner. Pool is very cold but clean. 2 hot tubs, one regular temp over 100 degrees and the other one in the 80's. Drink waiter service at the pool as well. Jungle trail on the property. Be careful when driving form San Jose to Monteverde as the GPS will take you the last miles on a steep rocky dirt road. No street signs in Monteverde or the entire country for that matter. Monteverde has mostly dirt roads.
